Greek Layered Appetizer ~ hummus, tzatziki, olives and feta layered for a simple, healthy dip. Add chicken for a light entrée.

A weekend in Northern Michigan for a girls’ wine weekend meant lots of laughs and good food. Everyone brought their favorite wine, dishes to share and . . . I did mention wine? There was plenty.

Chips and dip and sheet pans of pizza rolls with ranch dressing were brought out for late nights. We could have used a healthy appetizer like this Greek Layered Dip. I guess that’s why there’s “next time”.

After days of heavy food and not enough sleep, this Greek Layered Appetizer with toasted naan bread and fresh colorful veggies was just what I needed when I got home.

What’s in a Greek Layered Appetizer?

Layers of Greek flavors like creamy chickpea hummus, tangy tzatziki, crumbled Feta cheese, fresh tomatoes and Kalamata olives plus a sprinkle of fresh dill.

It’s an easy appetizer but with some grilled or baked chicken, it easily converts to a meal. I’ve made this dip many times over the years and it’s always the first one to go at a party.

Light, delicious and quick to whip up from grocery store ingredients. You can definitely make your own hummus and tzatziki but friends, there’s no shame in the grocery store game either.

Assembly:

On a plate or shallow pan, spread a layer of hummus then top evenly with tzatziki. Scatter the diced tomatoes, sliced Kalamata olives, crumbed Feta and a sprinkle of fresh dill and refrigerate at least 30 minutes up to overnight.

If you’re hosting a party, make this dip the day before and put it out when guests arrive.

I like to toast the pita or naan bread on a baking sheet, lightly spraying cut pieces with cooking spray and sprinkling with sea salt. They get warm and lightly crisp in about 5-8 minutes in a 400 degree oven.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Appetizer with toasted pita and fresh vegetables.
  • With grilled chicken for a lighter meal.
  • As a healthy light lunch.
